Yes, you have to pay to play monthly + buy the actual game upfront.
I was a member of the Closed Beta and while it was interesting, it didn't hold a candle in regards to previous Elder Scrolls installments (IMO). I'm having trouble placing a finger on what makes it like that due to my short time testing it and how long ago that was, so I'm not the best person to ask in the regard.

I probably would have still bought it for the full price if there wasn't a monthly fee associated with it. If it had the Guild Wars business model, I would have taken it up in a heartbeat.

And before some of you say, "You're a cheap butt motherfricker and that's no reason not to play a game" let me tell you something: I am a student and I don't have an income and my family has trouble buying food sometimes (I buy games using my christmas + birthday money from relatives and try to wait for sales, btw). We certainly don't need another monthly fee.

Not the right forum but it's locked there so to answer your question;

ESO is not a bad game. But it isn't a good game either and in a satured market as the MMORPGs, you can't settle for being average.

If you have money to burn then sure, go right ahead.

By fixed do you mean the developers deleting everything having to do with ESO and starting over?

I'm just kidding. I didn't realize there was a problem with it?

Why is this post here and not in ESO forum?
I am sure that they could tell you much more about the game than we could.

(ESO related posts have been locked by moderators in Skyrim forum, because it is a different game, has it's own forum and has absolutely nothing to do with Skyrim.)

In the Steam client, you can't post in the ESO Game Hub forum unless you own it. If you're on the web forum, that *may* be a different story.

And the reason you can't post there is that there was so much hate.

I've played it for around 100 hours. It's WoW with Elder Scrolls painted on it.

You guys are actually correct. Originally all threads about ESO were locked away from Skyrim forums, when ESO came to Steam. They have apparently changed their posting policy since then.

Well... we can always consider this as our primary ESO thread, unless someone locks this one as well.

What if one of us created a thread with the info on monthly payments and other FAQs in the original post and then managed to request the thread to be stickied and open to questions not covered in the original post? Would that be feasible?

EDIT: I think it would make sense, too, because many current Skyrim players must have questions about ESO and can't post in the ESO forum.

I wouldn't bother to be honest.

If the game was B2P without subscription I would probably pay the full price for it, but I can't justify spending extra every month when that money can be spent on other good games that provide much more content than the tiny monthly content updates that ESO gets.

I wouldn't waste my money on it.
ok good to hear I thought It was a waste of money. Too bad they had to do that or I would of bought the game.

It really depends what you want out of ESO.
If you go in expecting an experience comparable to TES you will be sadly disapointed (except for the bugs, they kept those).
If you are looking for TES flavoured WoW you will love it.

Thanks for pointing that out I like the TES series but not this one. The last was skyrim for me.
